Such a sweet man, always easy going and always welcoming, I was at their house a lot as a youngster, never seemed like we made too much noise (a bunch of crazy girls) he loved his family, very much a family man. Loved his sports! Love and prayers to each and every Newell family member. Gods speed Gene!

Condolences and deepest sympathy to the Newell family. There was no classier, more delightful human being than Gene. I remember him fondly from the ball field and the hockey arena's around the area. No greater testament to the quality of man he was than the wonderful members of his family who I join in mourning his loss.
